Former Sindh governor and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair escaped an attempted attack Tuesday night in Karachi. 

He and his wife were returning home from his sister-in-law's house when a car of assailants tried to intercept their car. His son took to Twitter to say that there were three suspects in the car.

Zubair was driving the car himself at the time of the incident. He was going to turn right but the other car tried to intercept them by blocking their way. I took off straight instead when I saw there was a pistol in his hand, aimed at me, the former governor told SAMAA TV.

I don't know if they were trying to scare me or do something else, that is something only the experts can determine, he said.

He has informed Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and IG Kaleem Imam of the incident.

South SSP Pir Muhammad Shah told the media that the incident occurred at around 11:30pm Tuesday night at Khayaban-e-Muhafiz. He said there were no shots fired during the incident and they are looking into whether it was a case of street crime or something else. There were no police cameras where the incident occurred, he said.

There were two to three assailants, he said, adding that six officers from the security zone are deployed with Zubair for his protection but the former governor doesn't like having so much security around.

We have requested him to keep the security officials with him from now on, said SSP Shah, adding that Zubair had not received any threats of any kind. He also urged the PML-N leader to file a case so the investigation can continue.
